Dave King and Lisa Templeton, from Extended Campus, and Kevin Gable, Faculty Senate President, facilitated a discussion related to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). What are they, where are they coming from, and most importantly, how should OSU faculty respond to them? They explored many of the factors relating to how MOOCs have affected higher education and where the topic is likely to take us. 

Faculty were asked to forward suggestions or comments to the Faculty Senate Office relating to the following:

  • What the university should be doing related to MOOCs.
  • How the university should be setting policies related to MOOCs.
  • How the Faculty Senate and its committees should be considering some of the ramifications of anything that we might do related to MOOCs.
